Countdown to Christmas ... 12/21/2016

Today, we made up fudge cups and got them ready for deliveries ....

... and I wrapped the gifts we had for the twins and delivered them to their mama tonight with the instructions that they could not open them until Christmas Day!!!!

We're on the home stretch with Christmas preps!

A Working Pantry is more than just about food! It's about household items needed to keep my home running smoothly readily available when needed.  It's about keeping a gift trunk so that I'm ready for any gift giving occasion.  It's about a lifestyle.  It's about keeping my home and looking well to the ways of my household and it's about doing it all as frugally as possible.  I hope you enjoy what you read here.


  1. I love the way that you have packaged up your fudge in cups. Great idea! Today, I haven't really done much in the way of Christmas preparations though I'm about to help my young boy make some chocolate coated macadamia nuts for his Dad for Christmas. Best go and put my apron on! Meg:)

    1. Meg, chocolate coated macadamia nuts ... can we just say YUM!!!!! You're making a sweet memory with your son ... that's one of the things Christmas is about!

  2. I love all that red paper; so festive!

    1. Debbie, I purchased that roll of red paper probably 5 years ago. It was a huge roll and on clearance! It has served us well and we still have quite a bit left on the roll!

  3. The presents and cups look lovely! You are wonderful to the twins. They must love you.
    Have a womderful Christmas Patsy! With love Annabel.xxxx

    1. Annabel, yes the twins do love us and we love them. They are not family but do have a special place in our hearts. Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. Nothing really in the way of prepping for Christmas- I think I'm about finished! I did get one last gift I had ordered for my Dad in from Bass Pro, so I wrapped it. I made fudge and cookies just for my family to enjoy.

  5. Your gifts are wrapped so nicely. You did a wonderful job.
    I made the layered jello for Christmas Eve which we will celebrate tomorrow with our son and his family. Marylee
